Hey by the way, ordered a dmd from The Pinball Resource for my WCS and ended up not using it.
Would really like to sell it as I have sustained a slash in hours at my job. Could use the money.
Brand new in the bag and box.Looking to get what I paid, $168 and change.
Thanks.
p.s.
try to get on Pinside once a day or so, not on constantly. I should be able to respond in a reasonable amount of time.

Hey guys, is there any good locations with multiple pins available for play in ne wisconsin? Either bars or pizzacades or something similar? All i know of is a couple in madison.

does not seem to be much in your area unfortunately.

You can check the pinside map >> https://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play

for places.

GeeksMania in Madison, WI has moved to up-front entry-fee pricing instead of coin drop. A good value if you're going to be sticking around for a few hours, but likely to turn off players who just want to stop in for a few games of pin (or arcades) during lunch or after work.

Rusty Quarters in Minneapolis, MN tried the up-front entry-fee route, shortly before it shuttered it's doors. Hopefully GeeksMania arcade has better luck.

Thanks again to all the route operators out there who put pins out there for guys like me who are too cheap to drop thousands on the expensive pins!

Not as such, but if you buddy up to some of the local collectors there are several with large, awesome collections in their basements!

also, not sure if just assuming based on your user name, but the Phish is often heard at my house when playing pinball.

If you dig that then we would likely get along well

#9111 5 years ago

Lol, its an old college nickname from early nineties. I was driving for dominos pizza, and was 6' 128lbs. Another driver being sarcastic called me fat, and a third driver who was a dj also said ya fat with a ph. So ya thats where it came from, stuck ever since. Course that was twenty some years and 50lbs ago....

Stevens point doesn't have any locations with more than one, but downtown has four within a few blocks of each other.
Here's my million dollar pin-steraunt idea. "Pins" referring to both the games and the constantly evolving menu based on patrons Pinterest recipes submissions.

Pinball app down, I'm in Minneapolis and I need to know the best place to play pinball. Go!!!!!!!!!!!!

#9119 5 years ago
Quoted from Friengineer:

SS Billiards 732 11th Ave So, Hopkins. Open until midnight.

LTG : )

#9120 5 years ago

Yes. Unless you want a drink. Then the nomad world pub or mortimers

#9121 5 years ago

Then Up/Down 3012 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis all the pins on quarter play.

Lol, only time I went to morts and someone got shot within 24 hours of my visit behind the bar. Each place has its ups and downs, so might as well try updown if you want liquor, SS if you want some serious pinball chat with lloyd.

#9123 5 years ago

Up Down is cheap... but filled with <25 year olds on weekends... and crowded as hell. If you need a drink with your pinball I'd say Mortimer's is the way to go. If drinks not required go to SS Billiards and get to know Lloyd we'll you're at it (a true asset to our hobby and worth supporting with your coin).

#9124 5 years ago

SS Billiards and a flask of non-alcoholic whiskey hidden in your wooden leg.

#9125 5 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

we have a Custer WI? Who was shot there?

Unincorporated three bars a auto shop and a post office. About 5 miles out of Stevens point. Used to have a bar named Custers last stand! Is that close enough.

I made a trip to "Custer, WI", last year I think, and nearly got run off the road by a school bus since THE "road" was not wide enough for 2 vehicles.

It's not that bad here. We have paved roads just some drive in the center. How's lectronomo ?

Sunset Bowl in Waukesha, WI now has a Ghostbuster Pro. (3 ball, 3 games for $2 / or $1 per game)

That's in addition to a Hobbit and I think an original nice looking Medieval Madness. (Or maybe it's a repro, I haven't looked that close.)

I'm planning a trip to Rapid City, SD on a Sat and Sun. in a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone wanted a game, pin or arcade picked up and delivered along my route. I'll be heading out from St Paul, down 35W to I-90 to Rapid City. I could pick up anywhere and drop it along that path. I'd only be able to deviate 20 or 30 miles off that route. PM me if ya need some help. Price is $85

Yeah - it's been on CL multiple times in the last few months. Started (I think) at 3500. Was on ebay at one point, and now back on CL most recently at $2700.

Don't think the CL ads mention it, but it's a reimport.

Absolute joy to play the Cactus Canyon at Mortimer's today. This game was even better than I recalled (probably b/c it has CCC installed I believe) but I completely forgot how much fun and nostalgic it was with all the nods to other games both in dots, sounds, and some playfield items.

It is a shame not more of these were made.

Thanks D&G for putting this on location!!!

When I was there a week or so ago, everybody wanted to play Cactus Canyon. You could practically feel others breathing down your neck, meanwhile all the other machines were vacant

Such a fun game. I wonder where the Monster Bash went?

Maybe it was in trade towards CCC? Neither are cheap
